HP's new Omen GamingPCs Look Sweet

HP has just announced their new Omen gaming PC lineup and it looks pretty awesome. The specs on their laptops run from quite modest to absolute high-end. The Omen X Desktop is very unique and is a classy cube case on a stand - balanced on it's edge. While it certainly looks like form over function, it's actually really well laid out internally and should be quite serviceable. More details at the link below.

And don't worry if you weren't in the market for an over-the-top desk machine, as there's more Omen hardware in the pipeline. An updated Omen 17 laptop now packs NVIDIA's portable version of the GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 as well as a mini DisplayPort jack, making it friendly to both VR and dual external screens.

Lenovo @ CES 2013

We had the opportunity to meet with Lenovo at CES 2013 and see some of their newest products and this year they've got a bunch of new products that are very exciting.

One of Lenovo’s hottest sellers in the past few months has been their new IdeaPad Yoga series of convertible ultrabooks that gives you the best features of an Ultrabook and the best features of a tablet all in one package thanks to a foldable screen that can convert from a laptop to a tablet in seconds. Previously the Yoga 11 series of ultrabooks featured Nvidia Tegra CPU’s and Windows RT but Lenovo has now announced the new Yoga 11S which will be running 3rd generation Intel i5 and i7 CPUs with a full version of Windows 8. The Yoga 11S will be running up to a 256GB SSD and have up to 6 hours of battery life.

Another new product Lenovo was showing off was their brand new addition to the ThinkPad lineup, the ThinkPad Helix. The Helix is tablet with a detachable keyboard unit which gives you the ultimate tablet or a very portable laptop. The Helix is running up to a 3rd Gen Intel i7 CPU and a FHD (1920x1080) 11.6” screen with Windows 8 Pro for some great performance. The battery life of the Helix is 5 hours outside of the dock and an additional 5 hours (10 hours total) when docked. The Helix will also have 4G LTE capabilities to make this the ultimate portable device.

Lenovo was also showcasing a full lineup of phones which are quite impressive, unfortunately at this time none of these are available in North American markets but we will keep our fingers crossed that someday they make an appearance over here. The biggest release from Lenovo in the cell phone category is the new  IdeaPhone K900. This phone features a 5.5” 400+ DPI screen (1080x1920) running a Dual-core Intel Z2580 CPU that uses the Android OS. Also included with the K900 is a 13MP camera with a F1.8 lens. The specifications are quite impressive and the polycarbonate unibody chassis is also pretty impressive which makes this phone perform just as well as it works and makes us wish that it would launch in North America.

One of the new products that Lenovo was proudly displaying is the brand new IdeaCentre Horizon which is the world’s first table PC which combines an all-in-one desktop PC with a design that allows you to lay the unit flat on a table and use it for multiplayer and touch enabled applications. The Horizon is the first device of this kind and thanks to some special accessories that include e-disk, a joystick, and striker, the Horizon can easily convert from being a full PC to a tabletop gaming device in seconds. This unit will feature 3rd Gen Intel processors and all the features of a high end PC including a FHD 1920x1080 touchscreen with 10 finger multitouch support. The Horizon is also portable thanks to a 2 hour battery that allows you to take it easily from your desk into the living room to show friends and family pictures or for a quick game of monopoly or other touch-enabled game. Check out our CES gallery for some pictures of the Horizon in action.

Ford at 2014 Calgary International Auto & Truck Show

We spent some time last week at the Calgary International Auto and Truck Show and took a look at what Ford has to offer - as well as strolled the venue to see what is new or exciting (or really, really shiney). Take a look at the video below and see what they have coming down the pipe and what we can expect from BlackBerry as they make moves in this direction in the coming years.

One Plus One Gets Pre-Order - For an Hour

If you've been tired of all the hoops to jump through in order to get a One Plus One, things are looking up! You will be able to pre-order this device on October 27, 2014 - for one hour. That's right. One hour. Obviously they are either trying to stimulate demand by lack of supply or they simply can't make them fast enough with their current production. Either way, if you want to get in on the goodness, check out the link below.

The One Plus One has a 5.5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 13MP camera, 3100mAh battery, and is available with 16GB or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately, each size does not come with a color option and instead the 16GB version will come in Silk White and the 64GB will come in Sandstone Black. The 16GB model will retail for $299, while the 64GB model is a mere $349 USD.
